A new augmented reality headset for developers has launched today. The DreamGlass 2.5K AR Headset from DreamWorld is Unity-based, has a 2.5K resolution, and has a 90-degree field of view. The Unity-based SDK allows developers to easily develop for both Windows and Android devices and the low price point allows for more developers to get into augmented reality development.
“There is so much potential in Augmented Reality, but the hardware limitations and steep price points of headsets available today have not made it easy for developers to fully contribute to the ecosystem,” states DreamWorld Founder & CEO, Kevin Zhong. “Through the DreamGlass, we hope to be the guiding light for all developers- providing them with an accessible top-quality platform to create top quality content. Only then, will they be empowered to bring a more genuine realism to augmented reality. We want to close the gap between reality and the augmented digital world.”
